Understanding International Bank Risk
Andrew Fight
Price: $ 89.95

In an era of globalisation, syndicated lending and consolidation within the banking world, virtually all industries will have international dealings, whether directly or indirectly, and will there be exposed to consequential risks. An understanding of international risk, from that of bank or country failure to the idiosyncrasies of different religious, cultural and regulatory frameworks, is essential to the modern banker. This book gives the reader a thorough understanding of how to calculate, analyse and manage such risks. Understanding International Bank Risk addresses the key areas of international risk within the banking environment. It shows the reader how to assess and model both bank and country risk in clear practical terms in order to make informed decisions and be aware of the early warning signs. It spans the full range of factors from the micro to the macro environment and pays particular attention to major growth areas such as syndicated lending.

"The logical and comprehensive analytical framework makes this a useful guide for credit analysis, particularly in relation to the fundamentals of a bank. Moreover, the frequent tie-ins between theory and empirical information lead to an interesting and easily digestible reading experience." -Suresh Menon, Executive Director, Rating Agency Malaysia Berhad

"Risk is the word on the lips of every financial practitioner. Andrew Fight's new book is both a timely introduction to the subject and an excellent survey of risk and risk management in their many manifestations." -Professor Charles W Munn, Chief Executive, The Chartered Institute of Bankers in Scotland, President, The European Bank Training Network, Chairman, QAA Scotland
